Behind Five Dot Botanics

better for your skin

We’re Zaffrin and Brian, owners and founders of Five Dot Botanics.

We didn’t set out to start a skincare revolution, only to shake up the status quo of the skincare industry, by asking why did it have to to be so complicated?

Why did products need so many ingredients?
Why did we need so many products?

fewer, better ingredients

The cosmetic scientist who creates and formulates our skincare took us on because we were asking him for less. We wanted products with fewer and better ingredients (while for decades people were asking for more and more).

It seemed logical to us. The fewer and better ingredients you have, the higher the quality of the product, which is better for your skin.

We stand for fewer ingredient skincare, which we believe is the key to healthy skin.

Do more with less.

We’re an independent British brand.

We work with a highly experience British formulation team and we have a British manufacturer.

We’re beauty outsiders, which is why we ask “why?” a lot, and why we looked for a highly experienced skincare scientist and formulations team to work with us.

We feel that the time is right to change the conversation, to make things more beautifully simple in skincare and in life.

In a world that always seems to be saying “buy more”, we say “let’s buy less but better”. Think of it as a quiet rebellion, a minimalist revolution.

Plant Based. Independent. Created, formulated and manufactured in the UK.
